Like a flower craving for the rain 
And the earth craving for new seeds 
Like the night craving for just a flame 
While the day craves for the sun's heat 

I crave everything I've ever felt 
            every color to exist 
            every problem with which I've dealt
            and every second I've ever missed 

I've gone the longest ways 
To fill this empty space 
Yet like a rose with no owner, 
                            no giver or 
                            no lover 
I long for somewhere 
                something or 
                someone, that I do not belong to 
And can never achieve to
